I admit to editing out the Librivox thing from the beginning of all but chapter 1 of some of the books I listen to, simply for flow. I don't think it's right (even if it is legal) for anyone to make money out of a public domain project which was put together by volunteers. :x -so hopefully they won'...

I am a native English speaker, with a love of languages in general. I studied French at school, and am continuing my studies in snippets of spare time now I'm an old lady of nearly 40 :wink: I love reading aloud in French, but really don't know how it sounds to a native ear. If anyone who has french...

Long live the bird! I must see if I can get a bird thrown in with my USB mic as a package deal :wink: :lol: Honestly, it's brilliant. I love the bird in Kara's recordings, and have spent quite some happy hours at my computer relaxing and enjoying a story while involved in what would have otherwise b...

I remember listening to something recorded by Kara (might have been the Secret Garden) and while the sound was clean, once in a while I heard the sound of a bird singing somewhere close by. It was completely delightful!

Regarding the German - I've found someone who has kindly recorded themselves reciting this piece so I have something to copy. I've done a short sample starting at the beginning of the chapter - please listen and tell me what I need to change before doing the whole thing? There does seem to be quite ...

One other thing: I would really appreciate help with the German section of this chapter. If someone would be able to record themselves reciting the following, and then post me a link to it, that will really help (otherwise I'll just have to do my best :? ) "Du Heilige, rufe dein Kind zur?ck, Ich hab...

Thank you, Heather :) I am clear on how to make the recording, and the proper protocols for beginning, ending, and preparing the file for upload - but I have no idea how to add my name to the page you mentioned. I do not have a URL. The user name I would like to use is Opheliad. Really looking forwa...

Hallo from New South Wales!

Hi everyone, what a great thing Librivox is - I discovered it this year and am so very impressed. This looks like a well organised really well run forum, btw - a delight to browse.

Hopefully I will be able to contribute a chapter here and there :) :)

I have never tried anything like this before, but have enjoyed listening to many Librivox recordings over the course of this year. :D I would love to try my hand at chapter 26. English is my mother tongue, my accent is mild Australian, and my spoken French is sufficiently good for this chapter - au ...
